Westin is now full

The Westin Hotel is now full. We may be able to squeeze a few more rooms out, but that will not be able to be settled until after everyone is back from the New Year holiday. There are still plenty of rooms available at the Doubletree.

Westin getting full

As of December 22, we are about 90% full at the Westin. There are still lots of rooms at the Doubletree.

If you should try to reserve at the Westin and find that it is full, please wait until after January 4 before making alternative arrangements. We may be able to add some more rooms at the Westin, but everyone who can make that decision for us is out on a well-deserved Christmas holiday, so we'll have to wait until after the New Year to see if we can fit a few more rooms in.

Both hotels still have rooms

Remember: the hotels are not full until we announce that they are full.

The Doubletree still has an ample supply of rooms as of this posting. The Westin has sold all of the double rooms that are available on Friday and Saturday nights. That means that if you try to reserve a double room across either of those days, the web site will return a "sold out" message. You can easily fix that by requesting a king-bed room.

Please refer to our FAQ before you panic, and watch the hotel page for updated status on both hotels.

Westin has no more double rooms

The Westin reports that the double rooms in the hotel are all spoken for on Friday and Saturday nights. There are still plenty of king rooms left, though.

Lots of rooms still available at the Westin

And the weekend computer glitch that made it look like our room block was sold out has been fixed.

Westin suites available in January

Suites will be available at the Westin starting in early January. We do not have prices yet; they will be announced at that time. For those who are thinking of getting a suite, we recommend that you make a reservation for a standard room now. You can upgrade the reservation later and simply pay the difference in the down payment. That way you will still have a room if the demand for suites outpaces the supply. Remember, suites are also available at the Doubletree, and those can be reserved right now.

Regarding the deposit on Westin rooms

Some folks have received email confirmations that indicate that cancellation would result in the entire stay being charged. This is, of course, a misprint. The email is generated automatically, and someone put the wrong numeric field into the template. It is being fixed. In the meantime, do not panic. Only one night's room and tax will be billed when the reservation is made, and no additional charges beyond that will be made if the room is canceled.
